Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Normally use Polar, but bought one of these on sale to try out.


One of these for the saddle pouch.


Also bought some new gloves. Old ones will become relegated to the trainer or as backups.

And an assortment of GU, Powerbar Gel, Clif Gel to try out.

one is a cable cutter and the other is a 4th hand... for pulling tension on a cable or cinching zip-ties super tight.

Got the frame of this bike( http://www.bikepedia.com/Images/Defa...-Allez-Pro.jpg ), and although its been a real hassle to transfer all the parts off my 2005 trek pilot 2.1 and find that some of them are in need of replacement (derailleur) or plain old don't fit (brakes), it has been worth it. I've learned more about bikes, and I've dropped over a pound in weight, and gained quite a bit of stiffness. I cannot wait until everything is all dialed in.

Had to buy a new one of these after my dog chewed up my last one. Must be jealous of time spent riding instead of paying attention to her.

The newly opened Performance in my area is giving out money coupons left and right. Last weekend I turned in my blown inner tubes in exchange for almost $60 cash (had to make multiple trips because of the "limits 3" rule). I ended up buying a pair of mtb shoes.
They are repeating the promotion once again this coming weekend. I wil probably line up in front of the store to get the $20 coupon and buy some new tubes.

If you left it on the valve you would need to remove it every time you pumped up the tire. Of course you could have a pump designed for both types but it is still more of a hassle than it is worth.

I'm fairly new to these forums and I'm not sure if i posted this picture correctly. But I got my first set of cycling cleats.



This is attempt number 2 at posting my bike related purchase. Hopefully it works!

Picture didn't work.

I removed where you attempted to post it since it had your last name on it.
